    I carry my 24/7 in a Yaqui model 023 made byDeSantis it has tension screws that allows you to make the holster as tight as you want it. They also make one for the 1911, but I prefer to carry my 1911 in a Bianchi Minimalist model 105 size 14, it's a belt slide very similar to a Yaqui.

    I daily carry with a Yaqui Slide stylized/like product by a company called Bandera which is a custom gun belt with a single or dual OWB holster slots built into it as one. I love mine and have none of the issues others have mentioned be it front sight snags nor muzzle push out of the holster upon sitting down et. al.
    Run a search here against my name for pics & info of the product or against the mfr. name in general here and at Google in general as many others enjoy this product albeit unconventional.

    It's stealthier than a Yaqui Slide holster as the sidearm does not sit away from the body but right up againbst and retention is excellent being fitted to the gun and tight or loose as the wearer prefers.
    I CCW 1911s in govt. size, CCO and a Colt 'Defender'.

    First things that comes to mind are Kevin's Eagle Defender and Gary Brommeland's Def-Con. Seems like either one would be close to what you're after and a quick email or phone call to your guru of choice would settle any unanswered questions.

    Yaqui slide is the holster that Jeff Cooper carries his full size 1911 in and has for more years than I have been alive. I've used them but prefer an ITP holster.

    As far as hight carrying for a shorter barrel weapon, check out http://www.mernickleholsters.com/ and peak at their PS6 holsters. He is famous for putting weapons high and tight.

    I use a Yaqui Slide for everything from a J Frame Smith to a 1911.
    I never used them on duty, but for CCW and Off duty they are swell.
    There are other holsters I like also.

    I wear overalls and use the Yaqui slide daily for three years now. I wear it inside my overalls at 2:00. It fits my needs and I have been satisfied with the comfort level and convenience. The bottom line is to try it and see how it works, for you. I have other leather but the slide works best for my purposes.
